Shidara Taiko Drummers at Fox Tucson Theatre on May 12

” Shidara was founded in 1989 by artistic director, Chabo. With deep roots in their remote Japanese village, Shidara performance carries a purity and devotion to the forest, and a festival harmony between the human and spirit worlds. Members practice and train eleven hours a day. They exceed mental and physical limitations as a way of life, creating an explosive dynamism onstage. Shidara hopes to bring people together, joining hands in reciprocal support while walking the essential path of mutual encouragement. Shidara’s exciting musical performances have created a huge stir in the North American Taiko communities and received standing ovations at the U.S. debuts, ensuing the popular demand which inspired their now extremely successful North American Tour!

Presented with Odaiko Sonora.”

May 12, at 3 p.m. at Fox Tucson Theatre, 17 W. Congress St. (west of Stone Ave.)

Tickets $19 to $39 on Fox Theatre website
